Crothix Pastilles -
Back by popular demand! Use these to thicken up any surfactant based liquid soap or shampoo product. Melt the pastilles over low heat until no lumps are present. Add to your room temperature soap or shampoo mixture and mix well. It will continue to thicken as the crothix cools. We recommend waiting a full 24 hours to see the final results before adjusting your recipe. Usage rate 1-8%. At much more than 25% usage rate, you will have a hard, putty-like block of product so always do a small test batch.

Botanical Name:

Works great
The pastilles work pretty consistently in both liquid soap (KOH) and surfactant based shampoos, body washes, and bubble baths. However, if you keep your house as cool as I do (65°F or so) - "room temperature" might cause the crothix to solidify into a gooey mass as soon as it hits your product! A little bit of heating and stirring will fix it right up. Just wait for it to cool to see your final viscosity! 2-3% is usually perfect!

Works great for me
Have tried both the liquid and pastilles for my body washes. Some say the liquid is easier to use especially for quick adjustments afterward but found the pastilles to work just as well and consistently. You do need to experiment and figure out the right percentage for your formula, for me it was 3%. Thanks BB for continuing to carry this product!

Awesome Awesome Awesome!
I just used these Thursday for my Saturday market (pastilles at 2% per pound of liquid soap) and I've got to tell you ... AMAZING! However, I added it to room temperature liquid soap and mixed it and it turned into a big clump by morning. Then I heated up the liquid soap and melted the pastilles (just warm ... no idea what my temps were ... just enough to melt the pastilles) and voila! Perfectly lovely thick luscious liquid soap by morning. Yaaayyy!!! Definitely will order again and again.

It's remarkable what this does to my liquid soap! My recipe of choice for body wash and hand soap uses both KOH and NaOH, and it's thicker than straight KOH soap, but still not what I was looking for where viscosity was concerned. Enter Crothix! Thickens beautifully, and does not interfere with clarity! I use it at about 5% and the results are perfect!
